Dreamweaver Scrollbar issue

Community Beginner ,

I created scrolling text on a webpage that works fine in Dreamweaver (Live view) but when viewed on a browser the scrollbar keeps jumping back to the top when released. I would like it to hold in place when released.

Thank you for your interest. I never thought it was a browser problem - I only noticed it on a browser. Again, The problem was in the "mouseup" command in the script. As far as this issue is concerned, all is well.

Sorry, I have no idea what any of that means.  What's the URL?

 

  • Browser scrollbars are a default device behavior.  There's nothing for you to "create."  
  • Short pages, have no vertical scrollbars.  Long pages do have scrollbars. 
  • Page size is determined by content and the user's viewport size -- i.e. mobile portrait, mobile landscape, tablet portrait, tablet landscape, laptop, desktop, jumbotron and all points in between...

 

#1 Rule in web design.  NEVER screw around with people's browsers.  Default behavior works and that's what people expect.

1. The original webpage did not have scrolling text, which I added. Perhaps I should have said "added" rather than "created".

2. It's long enough to have a scrollbar.

3. This had nothing to do with screwing around with other people's browsers - I just want the scrollbar to "work" online.

Thank you for responding.

Remove the scrolling text and see if the problem still exists. 

 

If yes:

the problem lies elsewhere.

 

If no:

the problem lies with the scrolling text.

 

As an aside, if you want us to have a look at the code, we will need to be privvy to it.

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

Put your problem page online along with supporting CSS and Scripts.  Post the URL here so we can see it.  Failing that, we don't know what's going on.

Hi, I’m glad it could be resolved on your own — would you mind telling other people who may have similar issues and find this topic what caused the issue and how you resolved it? Thank you!

@Anselm Hannemann,

Sadly the usability issues remain a problem until the OP rebuilds his website responsively.

 

See his follow-up question for reference.

She can chew on this issue as much as she likes - the problem is solved. The problem was in the "mouseup" command in the script, which refreshed the html page and reset the scrollbar to its original position.

It sounds like there’s a JavaScript in place causing this behavior. If so, we need a full demo of what’s happening to try it out and debug. Default browsers wouldn’t jump back to top on their own. It would also help if you then tell us in which browser this happens for you.
